Walk into the stylish living area of No 14 and your first word will be WOW! Not many properties have such a spectacular view across the river to Fowey and either way you look you will spot something engaging. In the distance you can see the sparkling waters of the bay and along the river a variety of watercraft, including the occasional cruise liner, meandering along.
No 14 faces west and benefits from long hours of sun on the substantial front deck where you can snuggle up to watch a blazing sunset. With a separate patio, ideal for a breakfast al fresco, this house has it all. Three en suite bedrooms, a spacious, sociable living area with galleried ceiling and bi-folding doors bringing the outside in, a family room for watching films and even a canine shower!
The famous Hall Walk circular walk can be accessed from the garden gate and the South West Coast Path is a short walk away. From here you can try a more challenging hike and be rewarded with some spectacular views across the stunning landscape. Stroll down to the harbour for lunch at one of the local pubs or take the ferry to Fowey to enjoy the many independent shops, cafes and galleries.

Polruan's position on a headland jutting out into the estuary meant that it once had great importance as a lookout point. Now, visitors can share the same commanding views from the headland looking out to sea, and across to Fowey on the far bank.
Up here is also the spectacularly beautiful Headland Garden, which has unexpectedly become known for more exotic flora than you might expect to find in this little corner of Cornwall. This has allowed it to be discovered and promoted far and wide.
While up here, gazing out into the distance, you may spot sea birds and other wildlife, and maybe even the odd seal. Much of the area is not only an AONB, but also a Special Area of Conservation, so that it can be preserved for future generations.
Like most villages in the area, the primary industry has always been fishing, however the locals are very welcoming to visitors, and tourism has taken its place.
Walkers will find the landscape to be ideal for hiking, or if you prefer just a gentle stroll, there are lots of options available. Upon your return, you can relax with a meal or drink in The Lugger Inn, or hop on the ferry and visit one of the pubs or cafes in Fowey.
Our first word on entering this property was 'WOW!!' A beautiful property in an absolutely stunning location, with an even more amazing view. Probably the best property we have stayed in. We did not want to leave and are already missing the amazing estuary view. Cornish Horizons description of the property was spot on and their directions invaluable, (as we would have ended up in a field if we had followed our sat nav!).Mr Michael Carlin - 10th September 2018
Breath-taking views from the property. We were so pleased to receive excellent directions on how to get to the property (to avoid very narrow roads). The property was of a very high standard, comfortable, a true 'home from home'.Mrs Gloria Watts - 14th May 2018
Lovely views.Mr Terry Johnson - 27th March 2018
Lovely property with stunning views Mr J Haworth - 14th August 2017
Fabulous house wonderful views! Really enjoyed staying in no 14 Polruan. Thanks xMr D Barlow - 7th August 2017
What a lovely week we have had here in beautiful Polruan - this house is just perfect! The views are amazing at all times of the day, always something to look at, I have spent quite a lot of the week working out if I can afford a holiday home here! If you do manage to drag yourself away from the views then there are so many lovely things to do here, and some fabulous walks, Lantic Bay is a must, but the climb back is something you will remember! We have had a really special time here, hope we can come again one day.Mrs Ruthven - 15th April 2017
